I did some calculations. Assumptions: r=0.17m, 1 pedal turn per second n=1/s, P=1965 It takes constantly 188kg on the pedal to get this enormous power. In reality the force/mass on the pedal is not constant so it gets a bit tricky ... The torque is the cross product Fxr. Assuming a vertical force on the pedal, the torque will be T=F*r*cos(alpha). Because of the 2 pedals the torque is T=F*r*|cos(a)|, where |x| is the abs function. The average value of abs(cos(a)) is the integral from 0 to 2pi divided by 2pi, which is 0,637. So the average mass value Mave=188kg is 63,7% of the maximum value. So my conclusion is that the maximum weight on the pedal has to be 295 kg. ----- I wonder how a 70-80 kg person should bring nearly 300kg on the pedal!

You're totally right. These values feel wrong so i checked the tech info (http://stagescycling.com/de/technology/). It looks as if they average the force of one pedal turn. Since only one leg is measured, they double the force. The provided formulas look very strange to me. The power of a drive shaft should be calculated P=2*pi*F*r*n. I wonder why they use the gravitational constant g - makes no sense here. In Addition, strain gauges in bridge circuit, probably wheatstone bridge, can easily cause wrong values. In highly dynamic cases, the evaluation isn't very reliable.

2.2 kW is equal to 3 bhp - i would doubt that. Unless Gee is horse enough :P
